Ya just never know what I'll blog about next...

So visit us often!

Yesterday was a cruel and ugly 
reminder of how the wind can howl here 
on the prairie...

which reminds me of blowing snow
which makes me think of all 
the work to do 
to get ready for 
the Winter wind 
that will be pounding on our door
in a few weeks!....

sealing up cracks,
more insulation,
digging up bulbs,
fix the roof,
the list is endless
just like all the useless junk laying around....

there's junk accumulating
in every orifice of this farm
and  "I NEED A TRUCK!"
to haul it all away...

I saw this beauty out in the Black Hills...

doesn't she just scream

I dream of her and I hauling junk
for days on end
and having the best time ever...

We would be cruisin' down the road...
I'd be singin' and she'd be hummin'...

We'd become B.F.F's,
Lizzy and I,
on our quest to 
clean up this farm!

and when all the junk 
was hauled away...

I'd paint her portrait 
and hang it on the wall,
for all to remember
the red truck 
that prettied the place up!

Have a super Wednesday!

I'm joining up (a first for me) with
for "Rednesday"
stop by and enjoy seeing alotta RED!

We love old trucks (mainly red). We had a 60's red chevy truck--it got so bad my hubby sold it for parts. I used to cruse all around in it when my kids were little.

My dad had one just like the pretty red one in this post (except it was Forest Green.) I loved that truck with the running boards and the spare tire on the side and wooden sides on the truck box. I could totally see you with this truck, Lisa.

And junk? You have junk, too? Oh, dear, I thought it was just us.

I WANT that truck.
I want to take it to work, and to the grocery store, and on long trips over back roads.
Really wonderful photographs of it. Such a cute little thing!

Thank you so much for sharing this at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful day!

It was love at first drive the day dad brought the old pickup home and I learned how to drive a stick shift. I think the misters VW bug needs to move out and make room for my pickup.

Dreams CAN come true, you know!


“I don’t have time,” my grandfather said,
“to dither around and stand on my head,
pretending that crimson is blue, not red—
just tell me the truth, if you please.

“I’m much too old for being lied to,
so tell me the truth about the rose hue
that colors the sky when the day is through
and adds a bright blush to the trees.

“Some call it red and some call it pink,
some call it strawberry wine-colored ink;
I call it rubicund, that’s what I think—
now leave me alone, if you please.”
